Penance Castle

You’re a boy of 11 years. You learn of an OLD WIVES’ TALE.
It’s brushed off by all as a silly old story that Is told at Halloween.
You wake up post-Halloween to find it’s come true You’re the only one next to your heartbroken mother Who believes it’s come to pass Imagine you are the family’s only hope.
Do you take it on yourself to solve the mystery?
Or do you run and hide and forget it ever happened
Like everyone else has done for years?

A story about a boy who manned up.
